Welcome to Belmont online!
Belmont Synagogue is an orthodox community of six hundred families in north-west London founded in the mid-1960s. We have a wide range of communal activities including daily services, educational programmes and special activities for all age groups.
The community is led by Rabbi Marc Levene and his wife Lisa, as well as Chair, Barbara Mazliah, and a Board of Management.
No longer one of the best kept secrets in the United Synagogue, we are surrounded by excellent Jewish primary and secondary schools.
Belmont is also surrounded by an eruv, which connects to other local eruvim and makes it easier to celebrate Shabbat with friends and family.
You will find more about Belmont on this website but the best way to get to know us it to visit. We promise you a very warm welcome.

DAVENING IN SHUL
No pre-registration is necessary, please be prepared to be marked in the register when you arrive for Trace & Test purposes.
The Shul will be set up as before in accordance with US guidelines, with two metres between seats. All attendees will be required to wear a face mask, sanitise their hands and enter and leave the premises without congregating. It is vital that everyone follows these procedures which are essential to keep our community safe. Booking will only be necessary for Shabbat/Yomtov services. Service times will be in the weekly newsletter.
New guidance from the United Synagogue states that those aged over 70 are welcome to attend services provided that 22 days have elapsed since their first covid-19 vaccination. Those who are clinically vulnerable and/or aged over 50 should continue to take account of the enhanced risk to themselves pre-vaccination and for 22 days post vaccination. Those who are extremely vulnerable should not attend services at this time.
We look forward to seeing you in our beautifully redecorated Shul very soon.
The Shul Office is currently closed but please call or email.
